A good chowder is one of the first meal ideas that comes to mind when the weather starts to chill. Chowders are thick,  hearty, easy to make in just one pot. Our Slow Cooker Chicken and Sweet Potato Chowder is a skinny chowder recipe using chicken breasts and sweet potatoes. We’ve substitute cream with coconut milk, and added sage and leeks for flavor. It’s all thrown into the slow cooker and allowed to simmer for hours until it reaches a creamy consistency.

Because you can make it in a slow cooker, this is a great, simple recipe option. You can even start it in the morning and come home to a hearty, healthy dinner in the evening. Serve it on a crisp, cool night with some crusty bread to soak up the delicious broth!
